What is the tactical advantage of a pistol grip on a rifle? Why not use a traditional stock like pic related?
>>
>>28488365
>Tactical advantage.
None. It's literally purely cosmetic.
>>
It's comfy.
>>
That looks really ugly.
>>
>>28488379
There must be one. Why would the military use them almost exclusively?
>>
Have you retards ever handled a firearm?
>>
>>28488407
>Pic has no comfyness
>Pistol grip has lots of comfyness
>>
>>28488365
ergonomics

how are you possibly even going to try to shoot around corners like pic related without a pistol grip?
>>
>>28488365
Have you ever shot a gun before?

Pistol grip is more comfortable to use, it also makes it easier to get the action in line with thw stock which decreases felt recoil.
>>
>>28488430
Your thumb m8

Curious, is this California legal If you took out the thirty rounder and added a bullet button?
>>
>>28488430
How often would that scenario even happen?
>>
>>28488498
Bullet button?
>>
>>28488365

repetability of control after each shot.
>>
>>28488365
>>28488407


The advantage comes from being easier and simpler to manufacture.
>>
>>28488457
Yeah I guess. I like more traditional rifles. I think they're comfier that way but whatever.

Never shot a shotgun with a pistol grip though, does it help control recoil better?
>>
>>28488520
uh how about quite often in a combat situation, I don't know about you but I wouldn't want to be putting more of my body around a corner than what is necessary just because i don't have a pistol grip.
>>
>>28488537
Giggle switch!
>>
>>28488365
where can i buy a lower like this?
>>
>>28488458
just using your thumb to pull the trigger around corners is nowhere near as good as using a pistol grip which gives almost full control of the weapon, just a thumb on the trigger=no control over the weapon

also pistol grips are useful for shooting over cover in this way
>>
>>28488498
it doesn't need a bullet button if it has that stock, you just need the 10 round magazine and its find for california
>>
>>28488578
easier and simple.
Think about it they use pistols too right?
having familiar grip and pointing just means less learning*

pistol grips are easier to control full auto
>>
>>28488693
so how is someone expected to reload with a bullet button? Do they literally have to use a tool between each mag?
>>
>>28488365
>What is the tactical advantage of a pistol grip on a rifle?
More ergonomic
Easier to control recoil
can fire it with one hand
more comfortable to carry for prolonged periods of times
>>
>>28489289
Yes.
>>
>>28489427
that's fucking retarded
>>
>>28489647
Just think how big of a peice of shit it was to reload before they were invented. They mount a peg on mags now so you use your next mag to pop out the empty. Works pretty good.

Wait a tic, where the fuck does the buffer spring go?
>>
>>28491950
I think it's curved.
>>
>>28488407
shooting like a typical rifle, there isn't really a reason.

but in urban or woodlands combat you find yourself in all kinds of wacky positions. a pistol grip affords you a better range of aiming and shooting positions without losing accuracy.

>>28488365
Pistol grip is more comfy to fire from a shouldered position, and can allow you to fire at angles/positions that would be awkward on a rifle grip.

Rifle grip is infinitely more comfy to fire from a hip/ready stance, allows for you to tighten the gun into your shoulder pocket a lot better, and would be better if you're a fucking fudd.

tl;dr, pistol grip is better unless you're hipfiring, which you're not doing unless you're trying to bump-fire full-retard.
>>
>>28488430
All that expensive bulky technology. Without it you would be blind firing. Why blind fire.
>>28488591
> I'd rather not aim.
Pussy.
>>28488562
>>28488581
>>28488733
It's not even about recoil control. Look at competition guns. Shotguns are virtually never equipped with a pistol grip and they have alot more recoil than an AR15.
>>28489332
It's simply more ergonomic for that style and places the hand closer to the controls. You can shoot standard rifles one handed even though why would you. Aiming is always the most effective way to shoot. More comfortable to carry? That is a preferance. Also they make slings for all rifles to help with that.
>>
>>28488365

I like how it feels. For ppl with small hands, they can reach the trigger much easier.
>>
If liberals outlaw any feature they should outlaw sights. That would be effective in making guns less effective at shooting.
>>

> I have no idea what I'm talking about.

>>28494361
Don't give them any ideas

>they have already tried to ban high powered baby seeking laser scope sights in California

Daily reminder your shoulders are what absorbes recoil.

>implying pistol grip doesn't allow for a more comfortable shooting stance and a wider variety of stances and positions to hold the firearm

Oh really m8?
>>
>>28494379
Yep that's pretty much spot on.

If your no longer looking down the sights, it doesn't matter how you hold it if you can still pull the trigger.
>>
>>28494351
> I'd rather not aim.
>Pussy.

OK you go head and stick your entire body around the wall to aim at one end of a building while I will put my gun around the wall with a pistol grip and half of my head to see what I am shooting at at the other end of a building and we will see who dies first.
>>
>>28494838
> who dies first.
The guy shooting at me because I'm actually able to hit him.
Your under this crazy notion that you are going to hit what your shooting at.
My enemy is dead and I'm in danger for less time than Mr. Spraynpray.

> implying their are cross hairs in real life.

Your also greatly exaggerating how much you need to be exposed to aim properly. It's all about how you use cover.
>>
>>28494904
actually you would be forced into cover by suppression before you could even get him in your sights, allowing him a chance to take aim for your next attempt at aiming around the corner
>>
>>28488498
Muzzle brake or no muzzle device and you dont need a bullet button. You slap a flash hider on there, you then violate the evil features bullshit.

All these answers, and they're all wrong.

The advantage of a pistol grip is that it lets the stock be in line with the bore axis without making it awkward to hold.

The advantage of a traditional stock is that it is lighter and simpler, all other things being equal. (Which they usually aren't, but whatever)

this is great discussion

i am really digging the firefight knowledge; i am not much of a fighter, so i come to /k/ for shootout experience and insights

>>
>>28488365
Feinstein pls go.

It allows the hand and wrist to be in a more natural position when firing from the shoulder as opposed to the classic straight or curved grip of most sporting arms. For most it's a comfort thing but many long arms are now made with a pistol type grip either standard or as an option.
